Merlin

Hi Bill!

Just wanted to write a note to check in. How has the winter been treating you? We got your Christmas card and letter. Sounds like you had quite the ordeal in Europe! Hopefully the trip was still worthwhile.

Merlin continues to be one of the loves of our life. He always acts as that wonderful reminder of unconditional love. We just celebrated his second birthday on the 21st of February. As you saw on facebook, I made him some home made doggy treats. He enjoyed them a lot!

      Even though the winter is cold, we still love to get out and hike. This past weekend we did a five mile walk through the Greenbush trails in the northern Kettles. Merlin just loves it! We are able to let him off of leash because the trails are pretty remote. We put a GPS tracker on him once and found that on average he goes 1.5 times the distance that we do. Adam and I think it is actually more, but the GPS tracker could only track to a small degree of accuracy. The five mile hike was almost enough to tire him out. Adam and I were pretty pooped after we were done. We like to get out and get a quality hike with him at least once a week if the weather and our schedules permit us. This past time he flushed out a few animals including one rabbit that was way too fast and nimble for him. He still put up a good chase though.
      I hope things are going well. I’ve been enjoying seeing the pictures of the pups. It’s always so exciting to think about new homes experiencing their pups. I hope you have a great rest of the winter and spring!

Merlin & Daisy

Kathern got Merlin and her sister just loved him.  So Danielle got Daisy.  Daisy is now a year old.

Jan 2015  Danielle         Having Daisy come into my household has been a big change but I can’t imagine life without her now.  She is a very happy dog and brings a lot of joy to my life and those around me, except for my cats.  The cats have not been excited about Daisy moving in, but they are finally starting to come around a little bit, so I am hopeful that they will all be friends eventually.  My biggest challenge with her is the “Come” command and her not listening to it, so any advice you have would be appreciated.  One of my favorite things is when Merlin and her get together, they just adore each other;  it is very interesting to watch them, because they play differently with each other than they do with other dogs, they seem to have a special bond.  She loves chewing on deer and elk antlers, chasing the birds and loves eating chicken.  Daisy was not that into any treats that I was trying to use to train her until I got some chicken jerky, so I have bought a dehydrator and make her chicken jerky for treats, which she loves.  Overall I love having her in my life and everyone that meets her, loves her.  My cousin and her husband (who hunts) was interested in her and possibly getting one like her, so I am going to give them your contact information if that is alright?

Danielle brought her sister Kathryn & Merlin along on her visit.  Danielle picked Daisy for her new pup.  Merlin and Max look very similar.
